Mammoet, the world’s largest engineered heavy lifting and transport service provider, has expanded its fleet with the addition of eight cranes in the Middle East, Africa and Caspian (MEA) region.
Established in the region for over 40 years, Mammoet MEA provides equipment day hire through to turnkey mega-project solutions and is represented in 11 countries across the region: UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Egypt, South Africa, Mozambique, Nigeria, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan; with the regional headquarters in Dubai, UAE.
A 600-tonne crawler crane, a 400-tonne, two 250-tonne and 100-tonne capacity all-terrain cranes, as well as three 35-tonne rough terrain cranes have been added to the regional fleet.
The expansion increases Mammoet’s capacity in the region, complementing the diverse fleet of equipment for projects and day rental jobs, adding flexibility and greater availability for work in several high-demand geographic areas.
The cranes will support Mammoet’s range of engineered heavy lifting work, from small construction sites to handling complex lifts in industrial plants. They will be available for customers across all sectors including the power, petrochemical, mining, renewables and civil construction sectors throughout the Middle East, Africa and the Caspian region.
Shortly after arrival, all cranes have been deployed on various construction projects: a short-term substation transformer installation and infrastructure construction activities throughout the UAE.
“We are excited to complement our current regional fleet with these additional cranes in the region as we are continually looking for ways to improve the efficiency of our operations and equipment ready availability for construction and maintenance projects; thus reinforcing our emphasis on service to our customers,” Michel Bunnik, Commercial Director Mammoet Middle East and Africa, said.
